"What Fellow Librarians Say;

You Can Get These Impressive Results Too!"

"What was really exceptional is the way you blended this summer's theme, "One World, Many Stories," into your performance.  You fully reinforced the message that Los Angeles Public Library wants youngsters to take to heart:  read, learn, and enjoy the public library.  The audience of kids, parents, caretakers, and counselors enjoyed the playful way you integrated music, stories, comedy, magic and audience participation. The adults were mesmerized and the kids were enthralled by the magic of Jersey Jim.  Thank you for bringing the joy of magic to so many this morning!"
--Ania Bloch, Senior Librarian, Tujunga Branch, Los Angeles Public Library

“Most liked how the children were participating with enthusiasm and the combining of stories to encourage the kids to read.  You gotta get Jersey Jim if you want the kids to enjoy your program.  Very, very good.  We’ll get him again.”

--Vanessa Chua, Children’s Librarian, Signal Hill Library

"Your program was great!  And you did indeed go above and beyond...I liked the way you incorporated the stories into your magic show.  You didn't just say "Reading is Magic," you actually gave short synopses of...different multicultural children's stories and wove them into your program.  You generated interest in children's literature for not only the children but their parents as well."
--Roberta Marquez, Library Manager, South El Monte Library

"The show was awesome!  I highly recommend Jersey Jim!  Most liked the book connections plus library terms and of course the magic!"

--Gail Ashbrooke, Librarian, Signal Hill Library

"Thank you for the wonderful show!!  It’s very good for kids of all ages.  Very entertaining, very funny, and fun.  Liked how the kids were involved in the show.  The rabbit trick is very cool!"

--Michelle Soong, Children’s Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library, Chinatown branch

“The whole performance was great.  It was child centered, friendly, very entertaining and interactive.  Best about the program was the story about “The Empty Pot.” 

--Ms. Anne Tan, Los Angeles Public Library
